**As of 16 March 2015, with the launch of the IT application, NCAs are invited to use exclusively the new register application and also to upload existing backlog data into the new register.
During a transitional period, starting 16 March 2015 and ending 16 June, both the static database and the new register will be displayed. However, the static database will not be updated anymore by ESMA and all new entries will be hosted on the new register.

***The UK FCA is in the process of completing the operational steps necessary for it to upload on the ESMA consolidated registers its national data concerning the list of investment firms authorised to provide investment services and activities. In the meantime, an update list is available here (link). The list will be updated on a regular basis.
